[Manga Maniac Cafe] Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Bion Donkova] Right. Always Right. Never, ever wrong. Ms. Stevenson calls me arrogant. I believe she is ignorant of the world. But that is a given, she’s been raised with the narrow views of Victorian society.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in the life of Bion Donkova?
[Bion Donkova] Dedication to duty. I set a goal to become a Navigator and it is something only achieved by the best. My skills in piloting an airship must be above excellent. Security is a chief concern, so Asian fighting skills are a must and they require daily training periods. Now I have the added duty of instructing Ms. Stevenson in the arts of being a Navigator. I do not mind mentoring her but she is stubborn.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Sophia?
[Bion Donkova] Stubborn, Unfairly fortunate. She encountered a Root Ball, which transformed her sight. It’s something I have been working toward for years and she stumbled upon.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What was the first thing that you noticed about her?
[Bion Donkova] Madam, that is not fit for public discussion.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Bion Donkova] Hummm, I believe that would involve the night that my good friend Sven and I went drinking at the Red Petticoat. I would decline the wager to seduce the madam who ran the upstairs establishment. Who might have guessed that so petite a woman might have leg irons secured so firmly to the sides of her bed?
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Bion Donkova] My integrity. Honor defines a man.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What do you like to do when you aren’t saving Sophia from the forces of evil?
[Bion Donkova] Raising eyebrow. A gentleman never kisses and tells.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Bion Donkova] I could never confine a definition of my new wife to so few words. I expect mayhem but confess I have become addicted to it.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!

About the book:
Airship Captain Bion Donkova has devoted his life to enhancing his navigational powers. When he discovers Sophia Stevenson has inadvertently received the gift of every captain’s dreams—the rare and powerful root crystal—he is just about ready to throw her overboard.
Sophia’s not so enchanted with her newfound powers—especially when she becomes the target of a corrupt airship deadset on using her powers for evil. When Sophia goes missing, Captain Bion drops his grudge and thunders to her rescue. Once the two are free of danger, it doesn’t take long before old grudges return, tempers flare, and red-hot passion ignite
